Going for German take-out gained a whole new meaning in Colorado Springs, Colo. recently. Security cameras outside a popular German restaurant caught images of a hungry bear stealing one of the restaurant's large dumpsters.

The bear -- with an obvious penchant for schnitzel and sauerkraut -- is seen getting up on its hind legs, grabbing an edge, and pulling the heavy dumpster away from the restaurant and across a parking lot.

The owner of the restaurant has since chained down his dumpsters and placed boards with small spikes around the bins in an effort to detract future visits.
